As you can see the log doesn't point to any errors - just notes/warnings. However, no datasets are outputted. I don't understand why. IS there something wrong with the macro calls? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Macro error mystery

Posted in reply to JediApprentice

Its telling you that you have unalanced quote marks and that whole chunk of text is being read as sting, not code.  As for where that is happening, well thats up to you to debug.  I would suggest to start by checking out what is happening before the macro definition as the probelm has occured before that.  Note, good idea to re-start session as these things hold over to next runs of code.  Say you are missing a quote in run one, then it will still affect any other runs thereafter, making debugging difficult.

So, start a new session.   Then take each block of code out of that macro, and run it individually, ensure that it works.  If all the blocks of code work, then it could also be your parameters, some of which I can see are going to be a problem:

     maclists=('MAC01','MACNC','MACIA','MACIVL','MACMAILHIM','MACMS'),

 

Doesn't look good to start with.  Also, I don't see why you have all those SQL steps, there should be simpler methods using SAS functionality.  Also, not sure on some of your syntax, what are you specifying a literal for datasets?

 A=WORK.'MAC JXA'n,

That doesn't make any sense?  Why do you have spaces in it?  Looks like the whole process is a bit shaky.

Set

OPTIONS MPRINT SYMBOLGEN;

and rerun the code for one of the macro calls.

 

I suspect that when you trace down the source of the

WARNING: The quoted string currently being processed has become more than 262 characters long.  You might have unbalanced quotation marks

 

warning that you'll see something that is commenting cause issues with either the Proc statement or Quit appearing inside of quotes.

 

Did you try commenting out all but the first Proc sql and see if that has a result? and then add in each Proc Sql step until the output stops?

 

I also suspect the heavy use of the name literals complicates things.

Re: Macro error mystery

Thank you for the suggestions. I tried debugging and still couldn't find the errors so did what @RW9 mentioned which was to restart the session and everything worked, producing all datasets properly with no errors. Basically I inherited this code and tried to make it simpler by turning it intro a macro instead of having 24 proc sqls I only have 8. Do you guys have any general suggestions for how to make this even simpler using SAS functionality instead of using all these proc sql's that feed into each other? I'm not expecting you to give me code, just maybe how I could approach the problem.

I'm not going to try to figure out what the code is actually supposed to accomplish. When looking at lots of sums though I start suspecting that maybe Proc Summary/Means and creative use of classes may be an option. You can get summaries for each level and combination of levels of multiple variables in one pass through Proc Summary and then use the automatic _type_ variable to sort through them.
